Sudwala Caves - Part 2

It was once again wonderful to have some very special people from Italy visiting me for a few days and being able to show them around. Andrea and his wife have to rank amongst the most wonderful people I have met so please do go and visit his blog SIDECAR where he shares pictures of his travels to South Africa.
 During this trip we visited the Sudwala Caves and the eastern escarpment also spending a day in Kruger National Park. Although it was winter, the weather was glorious until the last night when we almost got blown away by the wind. LOL!!
 A ghost?? I never noticed this till I had it on the computer. It looks like me taking a picture of a lady taking a picture of a ghost!! LOL!! Now the question is - WAS it a ghost?? LOL!!
 For more information and pictures on the Sudwala Caves please click on the link.
 Because of the amount of people in the caves, there are not so many bats to be found anymore except in very high places so it was wonderful to find one low down enough to photograph.
 They make very good use of lights in the cave to highlight some formations.
